phy_si_kal writes "The open source Opa project just released its 1.0 version. Opa appeared last year and was discussed a few times. Throughout the year, Opa adopted a JavaScript-like syntax, gained support for MongoDB and now Node.js. Opa positions itself as the enterprise JavaScript framework due to the safety and security provided by its strong static typing system. Indeed, Opa checks the type safety of the application over the whole application, from client, to server, to database. Opa also provides many automation algorithms, such as the automated use of Node.js fibers at runtime, automated client/server and server/database dialog. The site of the project also announces a developer challenge."

    I'd like to add that for me, the biggest plus for the language is that it lets you avoid the details of hassling with ajax requests and trying to push notifications to clients by completely abstracting all that away. Compared to most other web development languages/frameworks you know that you can write your entire web app in one language and that if within 1 function you want to persist something to the database and update the webpage DOM you can do that and the opa compiler will handle splitting that out into the client-side and server-side code to accomplish that with the glue to hold them together. That is what makes the language beautiful to me.

This process can check if this value is zero, and if it is, it does something child-like. -- Forbes Burkowski, CS 454, University of Washington
